The guy gave up his constitutional rights by being an idiot and admitting he did it.

I actually have no issue with the guy south of the border who pointed the cops towards the idiot.



This.

The article said the forum post was what caused them to launch the investigation, make a conviction. Not only did the suspect confess, but he pleaded guilty as well. A forum post is technically a piece of evidence, but it is one of the most easily shot down and dismissed pieces of evidence to introduce that no ADA would ever use it. A confession, on the other hand, is quite a bit easier.


Aaaaand just to play the devil's advocate here... everyone condemning the kid for speeding through an area they don't know and have never been through doesn't really have a lot of basis to do so. There are a number of indications that a lot of traffic law, i.e. red light cameras, is incorporated and enforced with revenue generation as a primary goal as opposed to safety. There is no reason that we should believe speed limits are assessed with more noble goals. Chances are that the suspect was being overly risky here, and speeding excessively, granted. However, I certainly know of a few flat, straight countryside roads with a 30 mph speed limit used by most cars at around 60-65 mph...


If you truly think that speed limits are purely used for safety, then I'd beg this question:

When was the last time a speed limit in your town was changed? I know in the town I grew up in, the same roads have had the same speed limits for 40+ years. Hard to believe that today's cars are no safer than those being made in the 1970s...

Kid should have said he was doing 350mph.. that way he'd be a record breaker as well as a law-breaker!

They didn't arrest him over the post, they questioned him. No different than if the kid told his neighbor and the neighbor called the police.

Talking out of rear???

I read the entire article and was just making a point at how rediculous the whole thing is. The fact that someone would take a statement posted from someone in a completely different country and call up the other country to report it is rediculous. On top of the fact that the Canadians took the time to actually follow it up and get the $1,000 fine out of it. We all know it cost them more than the $1,000 to track the kid down and go through the "legal" process.

If this is how everyone feels then please someone pull up the posting of everyones top speed and start calling the cops!! Ill make sure to be waiting in my driveway so the state pig next door will come and arrest me!!

Exclamation Dude does 140 in 40 zone, posts online, gets arrested

The title says it all. A 5 series forum member made a post about doing 140 in a 40 zone, someone reports it, he gets arrested, fined, etc...

Here the article: http://www.globallethbridge.com/Vaug...185/story.html

Heres the forum: http://forums.5series.net/topic/9549...-on-a-40-zone/


Remember: a person is smart, people are dumb

+1 yeah.. you have to be pretty dumb to get caught for that. As long as you don't talk they can't 100% prove it. If he talked to the cops without his attorney then he deserved to get hit with this stupid tax. Furthermore... going that fast in a residential is what raises insurance rates and endangers lives. Just classically stupid. If he wanted to go that fast then take it to the track.

I dont even have to open the link and i know exactly what your talking about. I saw this on jalopnik and it made me smile. Thats what happens when you give an under-experienced kid, who thinks his reckless driving should be praised, a 500 hp sports car. This was just pure stupidity.

Yea I read about that yesterday. Doing 140 kph in a residential area is pretty idiotic and to brag about it on the internet, he got what he deserved.

Talk about no rights. That post that asks how fast has everyone gone in their car needs to be taken down ASAP (I'm screwed!)!!!!
Yeah for real...where is the proof in this situation? This sounds like complete BS

There is no evidence there... I wouldn't think that that kind of evidence would be admissible.
